On the eve of Euro 2008, writer and comedian Danny Robins visits Rome to discover if the Catholic Church can inject new morality into Italian football. The domestic game is blighted by match fixing, corruption and bad behaviour on the terraces. A senior Cardinal and former radio commentator has said that he wants the Vatican football team to join Fifa, and the Vatican has sanctioned a tournament strictly for Rome's seminaries. Can the Church restore faith and good sportsmanship?
